The group behind efforts to recall Gov. Scott Walker revealed this week they are nearly halfway to the required 540,000 signatures needed to trigger a recall election.
But not everyone in Greenfield is fired up about that news.
Early last week, Greenfield Patch reported Mayor Michael Neitzke and City Hall had received multiple emails and phone calls from residents angered that petitioners were collecting signatures in the Greenfield Public Library.
This week, Greenfield NOW is reporting the Greenfield Police Department has fielded several recall-related calls, including one from the owner Layton Plaza, 7515 W. Layton Ave., who was upset that petitioners have been manning the corner of 76th Street and Layton Avenue, where the plaza is located, almost daily.
The story also indicates at least one case of verbal abuse, one citizen concerned about petitioners on private property and one incident of a van swerving at person collecting signatures.
Police Chief Brad Wentlandt told Patch his department had taken 5-10 calls, mostly complaints about petitioners standing roadside.
